A spin-off of ‘Making It,’ Peacock’s ‘Baking It’ is a reality competition series created by Amy Poehler that brings together eight teams of talented home baker duos in a winter cabin setting during the holiday season. The pairs must compete against one another and bake creative and sweet dishes while sticking to a specific theme. Their savory creations are then judged by elderly ladies who pose as judges for the cooking competition.
In the inaugural season, the bakers are joined by two entertaining hosts, Maya Rudolph and Andy Samberg, while Amy Poehler replaces Samberg for the sophomore round. Although the show’s format is similar to most cooking shows, the hosts don’t fail to make it entertaining for the contestants and viewers. In addition, since the competition takes place inside a cabin, it leaves you guessing where it is actually shot. Well, we have gathered all the information about the same to appease your curiosity!
